Talk about bringing right-hander Roy Halladay to Philadelphia — even after talks wrapped yesterday — is a hot topic around the blog-o-sphere.
Though the close to $16 million price tag the Blue Jays’ ace is looking to net, the need for pitching depth in Philadelphia is undeniable. We barely squeaked into the World Series this year, riding Lee’s worn and battered coattails the whole way.
With Hamels pretty much a non-factor at this point, the Phils know they need to make some changes, even if they won’t publicly admit it. However, speculation that J.A. Happ is the bartering chip is highly unnerving.
Ross Gload, a Marlins outfielder, is all the Phils inked during the Winter Meetings.
